NYPD Finds Missing 11-Year-Old, Mother in Custody

Domingo (NYPD) and Metro Hotel (Google)

March 27, 2019 By Christian Murray

An 11-year-old girl who was reported missing Monday has been found in lower Manhattan and her mother is in custody, police said.

Nissa Domingo, from Las Vegas, had not been seen by her father since Feb. 15 in their Las Vegas home. Her parents were in the midst of a custody battle and her mother took her to New York where they disappeared, police said.

Her father filed a missing person report soon after she went missing with the Las Vegas Police Department. Las Vegas police then later reached out to the NYPD when it heard she was in the city.

The NYPD determined that she had been staying at the Metro Hotel, located at 73-00 Queens Blvd., for a period of time and conducted a search.

Domingo was found yesterday and her mother, Raenezza Domingo, is in custody, awaiting extradition for absconding with the child and violating the custody order.

Instead of all the bickering can everybody just put a little thought into the child and what will help her be happy through all of the trauma

I did. All these snowflakes are ripping me a new one because of me being tired of being the only one who is held responsible for the safety of the children.

If this place is horrible, then move. By the way, taxpayers pay $5,000 per room to shelter the homeless. That’s more than rent!

I suggest to re-read the article. She violated a court order. If she’s not guilty, why flee Las Vegas?

So now mothers and daughters can be ripped apart by court order, and this will be enforced by NYPD?
Talk about your politically correct thought police!
Yes, we’ve come a long way, baby.

Do you know the story? They are in the middle of a custody battle. Mother just lost all chance to be with her again. Now she is a flight risk and USA can no longer automatically assume the females related to the children are automatically the best choice for a sole custody just because they are women.

Why blame NYPD for this, The came from Vegas.

I hope that you will never become homeless and need such services.

New York City Homelessness: The Basic Facts
In recent years, homelessness in New York City has reached the highest levels since the Great Depression of the 1930s.
In January 2019, there were 63,839 homeless people, including 15,492 homeless families with 22,938 homeless children, sleeping each night in the New York City municipal shelter system. Families make up three-quarters of the homeless shelter population.
Over the course of City fiscal year 2018, 133,284 different homeless men, women, and children slept in the New York City municipal shelter system. This includes over 45,600 different homeless New York City children.
In 2015, families entering shelter came from a few clustered zip codes in the poorest neighborhoods in New York City. However, homeless families and single adults come from every zip code in NYC prior to entering shelters.
The number of homeless New Yorkers sleeping each night in municipal shelters is now 74 percent higher than it was ten years ago.
Research shows that the primary cause of homelessness, particularly among families, is lack of affordable housing. Surveys of homeless families have identified the following major immediate, triggering causes of homelessness: eviction; doubled-up or severely overcrowded housing; domestic violence; job loss; and hazardous housing conditions.
Research shows that, compared to homeless families, homeless single adults have much higher rates of serious mental illness, addiction disorders, and other severe health problems.
Each night thousands of unsheltered homeless people sleep on New York City streets, in the subway system, and in other public spaces. There is no accurate measurement of New York City’s unsheltered homeless population, and recent City surveys significantly underestimate the number of unsheltered homeless New Yorkers.
Studies show that the large majority of street homeless New Yorkers are people living with mental illness or other severe health problems.
African-American and Latino New Yorkers are disproportionately affected by homelessness. Approximately 58 percent of New York City homeless shelter residents are African-American, 31 percent are Latino, 7 percent are white, less than 1 percent are Asian-American, and 3 percent are of unknown race/ethnicity.

I never asserted she was homeless. I was replying to someone’s comment about homelessness.

And your solution to the homlessness is just to keep providing them places to live in the middle of busy neighborhoods with no job assistance or help them find a job? I feel really bad for truly homeless people who have noone to help them when they are down, not everyone is lucky to have a big family to help them when they have problems, but what NYC doing is not addressing homlessness, it’s just giving people place to live where they are exposed to all sort of fraud, crime, and sketchy people. You put nice people among these, they learn the ways of sketchiness and they become one.

Homelessness needs to be addressed at root cause and to prevent it in the first place. Stuffing people in hotels is not a solution.

Oh thanks be to God for this wonderful news!!! There are no words.

Next time, folks who are legally responsible for children, please don’t wait 6weeks to ask the police for help in a lost child.

Wow! 22 downvotes?? Is this really what NYC and Sunnyside is about? If so, I’m moving!

If you think I meant my OC derogatory or sarcastic I assure you I am nothing of the sort.

What six weeks? “Her father filed a missing person report soon after she went missing with the Las Vegas Police Department.” It’s in the article. That’s why you got all the downvotes.

You wrote saying “don’t wait 6 weeks to ask police for help”, dear boss. I don’t know if you rushed through the article, but the father reached out soon after his daughter went missing. It was recently found out that she was in NYC. These types of cases where it’s across the other side of the country take time and the reason you were down voted was because you didn’t take the time to do all your research

Sure, but how are we to know anything. Sunnyside post is not behaving like a professional news media center by phoning in the info.

And, as a teacher in this city, I see this parenting often. Keep things hush hush until irreversible happens.

Teachers and NYPD can not be the only ones who are required to keep children safe.

I can see that you’re passionate about this and have seen firsthand how some of these situations have been handled. But some does not mean all. I am inclined to give the father the benefit of the doubt and I’m sure he did everything he could in a prompt manner seeing as he had custody.

As far as Sunnyside Post is concerned, they offered what little information they had in the matter and asked for help through the community. What can you really expect a publication to do with what little facts they had?? Hell!! This didn’t even make it into any other local media, but Sunnyside Post was the first to help and the first to say the girl was found. What more can you ask from a free media outlet??

Dear Anonimo

Yes, I am. Thank you so much for noticing. I understand how hard my words were but it only comes from, what you explained, as first hand experience.

I DO see this all the time and it infuriates me to no end. The parents who can not watch their own few children are the first ones to sue a teacher when we have to watch (and entertain) 32 first graders!!!

I don’t do votes. But perhaps it’s because you criticized the father for waiting “6weeks” to contact police when the story in fact says he “filed a missing person report soon after she went missing with the Las Vegas Police Department?”
